Black Magic

Hi my lovelies, hope you're all OK. I saw the challenge this week at Lili's Little Fairies is Black Magic. I initially thought about doing a boys card, but when I was mooching amongst my bits I found this pin, ribbon and remembered about my black top stitch thread and changed my mind.

I've coloured Cake Glorious Cake in with my Distress Markers, and added sparkle with Glamour Dust. The roses are out of my stash.

I bought the pom pom trim from the Ribbon Reel, I won a voucher for there the other week.

My arty shot.

Sorry it's short and sweet, but I've been feeling a bit off all day. Since I picked the kids up from school I've started to feel really ropey. My ear feels like that there is a water bubble in there, and it unusually seems to be amplifying sound-which is probably why I feel worse since I got the kids. It's also making me feel a bit wobbly, I'm feeling a tad sorry for myself :(

I was on nights the night before the kids went back to school, so my friend sent me this pic of them on their way, I've Instagramed it though. Poor Grace though, she managed to fall on her face about 2.15 so she now has a bruise on her forehead, a black eye and a couple of grazes down the side of her cheek. Luckily she'd broken her glasses and we were picking them up after school, or it could have been so much worse, bless her.
